Brooks Conrad moved to second
ATLANTA -- Braves manager Bobby Cox is moving Brooks Conrad from third base to second base for the regular-season finale against Philadelphia after Conrad made crucial throwing errors in losses the previous two days.
Conrad's errors on throws to second base led to a combined seven unearned runs in 11-5 and 7-0 losses to the Phillies on Friday and Saturday. Cox says he is making the change for Conrad's "peace of mind."
Conrad played most of his minor league career at second base.
